Mugshots Cafe: renovated and reopened

The Fernie-favourite once again has its doors open to the public

Following weeks of renovations, Mugshots Cafe is once again pouring coffees and scrambling eggs.

Operating under the new ownership of Florence Desrochers, customers can expect a continuation of well-loved aspects of the old space, infused with a fresh vibe, new decor, and jazzed up menu options.

Kicking things off with a soft opening on Sept. 17, the Mugshots team has been taking their time easing into operations. Tweaking and adjusting as they head into the fall, Desrochers has big plans for the future including continued renovations on both the interior and exterior of the cafe.

“We are starting slow because I want to have the chance to chat with people, talk to people who used to come here and see what they do like, what they would like to see, and to take time to do it correctly,” said Desrochers.

Apart from offering both specialty and drip coffee, smoothies, and an assortment of tea, Mugshots Cafe is also offering a comprehensive food menu.

Available for purchase are a variety of both sweet and savoury breakfast options including breakfast burritos, smoothie bowls, and french toast. The cafe is also offering a number of paninis, sandwiches, and salads, alongside shelves full of decadent brownies, cookies, and muffins.

Desrochers hopes to continue adding to the menu and expanding operating hours in the coming months.

Currently, customers are welcome to dine in or take out from Wednesday through Sunday, 7 a.m. until 3 p.m.
